Despite not placing within the top three at the first edition of Eurovision Choir of the Year, Louise Brinch Seidelin the Chairwoman of the Danish choir has given the contest her full support for the future. In an interview with DR, Ms Brinch Seidelen gave her thoughts on the contest,
I think it’s a great idea. Yesterday we saw a lot of different ideas on what choral singing really is and can be and there were many nice and beautiful performances. So I certainly hope that continues.
She went on to add that the choir were not disappointed about not winning the contest but instead were proud of being part of the competition. Ms Brinch Seidelin also praised the organisation of the competition adding,
Usually for competitions, we may have had 10 minutes in total on the stage to practice us, but there have been many general rehearsals so we were safe to get on stage. It’s an amazing and huge show. It has also been very well organized and it has been a great, great experience,
